Liberty County Information

Bristol is the County Seat for Liberty County!  The Garden of Eden was believed to be found in the town of Bristol in the 1930s. It was based on one man's discovery on the fact that the Apalachicola River splits into rivers, like the one described in Genesis that watered the Garden of Eden. He also pointed to the existence of the rare Torreya tree, which only grows in a small area along the bluffs of the Apalachicola. The Torreya is also called gopher wood, which is mentioned in the Bible as the wood used by Noah for the Ark. The Garden of Eden Trail still exists in the Apalachicola National Forest. Liberty County is named for the popular American ideal of liberty.  The county is the least-populated and least-densely populated of all of Florida's counties and is only one of five dry counties in Florida. The Apalachicola National Forest occupies half the county.
